I was wondering if anyone knows of a good Dr in the MidWest for treatments? Or laser options?
In 2007, I started getting laser treatments again after about a 10-year lapse. My Dr used a YAG laser (he's the only available in the area who took our insurance). I saw him for a a year or so before he said he couldn't do anything more for me.
This past winter, I noticed my PWS was getting thicker/darker, tho it isn't starting to cobble-stone yet, I have noticed a few new blebs and it has darkened from my last treatment (nearly 3 years ago, i think) and would like to get it checked out. Insurance is no longer an issue since I have been dropped from my parent's policy (yay for getting older! lol), however cost is still a potential issue.
I live in S IL, have family in OK and go to school in TX and was wondering if anyone has any recommendations? I will be 24 in June, so a paediatric Dr is likely out of the question.
My PWS is on the left side of my forehead and extends from just above my hairline to the lower edge of my upper eye lid (it is not on my eye or on the "lip" of my eyelid). I currently don't want lasering done on the eyelid itself--just from my eyebrow up.
Here are some pics showing my birthmark:
roughly 1 year ago. Please ignore the wounds... I'd been kicked by a horse :/ I have fully healed & you can barely see where the stitches were
I can't seem to find any recent pictures, but once I do, I'll see if I can get them posted.
